    Project Cargo Weekly: interview with COLI managing director Felix Peinemann

    We’re proud to be featured in Project Cargo Weekly (PCW)!

    For starters Felix, I always allow my interviewees to explain a bit about their background. What is your background and why did you get into shipping and logistics in the first place?

    Well, I started my career with Panalpina where I did my apprenticeship and worked for the Panprojects Division for approximately 10 years holding various positions and my last one was at the Chartering Desk in charge for all chartering activities of the group. After 10 years I decided to expand my portfolio and joined Coli Shipping in Bremen where I was in charge for renewables for a major US client, I also became MD of Coli in Bremen.

    Together with my colleague Alain Akavi. 2011 we also made an agreement with Jumbo Shipping to become their Booking Agent for Germany, Austria as well as Switzerland and had good success which resulted in the fact that after 10 years I decided to start a new journey and opened up Jumbo Germany to represent Jumbo Shipping directly. After some time I was promoted as Director Shipping and took care of the commercial activities together with the worldwide team. In 2023 I was contacted by Alain Akavi & Herbert Lösing and we had good talks so I decided to go back to Coli.

    Coli Shipping has a proud history. Can you elaborate a bit on the background of Coli leading up to the present day?

    The cornerstone was laid in 1974 with the foundation of the company in Hamburg and Bremen. At that time we started as Liner Agency under the name of Contimar Linienagentur for a carrier handling breakbulk cargo to the Eastern Mediterranean. during the 2nd oil crisis in the early 80’s and the trend of globalization the cargo streams of goods drastically changed. As a result we realigned ourselves and shifted our business focus from pure liner agency services more towards becoming an independent ship and cargo broker for worldwide trading. Today cargo brokerage is still one of our main trading activities but we are also, together with our daughter companies ABB & CPC, active on the operating side with mainly F-360 Class vessels and next to this to serve our clients also offering some logistical services in certain areas where we have a strong local presence. Lastly we also have a Bulk Division (Coli Bulk) who have their focus on Handy Size Vessels on TCT as well as longer TC.

    Coli Shipping has several activities nowadays. What can you briefly tell our readers on your main sectors in shipping & logistics?

    For a long time and this goes back more than a decade we have been very active in the renewables and serving more or less all major producers on a regular basis, not only as brokers but also as consultants due to our vast experience is this segment. We know what the botlenecks are and which risks as well as opportunities should be considered. We are also quite active in LNG as well as typical breakbulk cargoes. On the logistics side we have also established 4 main hubs for our activities which are Sao Paulo – Brasil, Hamburg – Germany, Istanbul – Turky as well as Shanghai, China where we are serving a lot of direct clients in the meantime and our service portfolio is not limited, it all depends on our clients’ needs.

    In your own words why would you say that Coli Shipping is a good choice in shipping? what makes you stand out in a competitive environment?

    Clients do not want a so called QUOTE/UNQUOTE broker anymore as they are seeking for advice, consultancy and a team approach for their projects which we can deliver. Due to our experience in all sectors we understand their problems and fears and do our utmost to delivery as promised. Meaning meeting their expectations. as we have backgrounds as brokers, carriers as well as in logistics, we are benefiting from the experience within the group and can offer our clients the solution they need.

    Wise people have said that shipping is all about people and it more about who you know than what you know. How do you go about in Coli Shipping to expand your global reach and your global network?

    We are very active and always seeking for possibilities to grow, not only in the standard regions but also beyond this. We have good teams around the globe who are very active in their local market but also markets around them. Next to this we have learned that social media is becoming more and more dominant and since the start of 2024 we are also more active which is a nice tool for us to illustrate our portfolio.

    As you know the undersigned editor shall be traveling as a passenger onboard your chartered vessel mv ABB Vanessa to Japan. I understand that Coli Shipping has had links to Japan for many many years. Can you tell our readers more? As many find Japan a very difficult market which obviously Coli Shipping has succeeded in.

    Our founder Mr. Lösing has been active in japan since the early 80’s so you can imagine that after such a long time we have established excellent relationships with our clients there. Japan for sure is not the easiest market to enter but once you have shown your clients what you can offer them and work in a close partnership they will respect and honor that.

    The shipping market has been in turmoil in the last couple of years both due to COVID but also due to politics, canal closures and so on. How do you view the situation going forward in 2024 for shipping business?

    We think that the market will remain a bit weaker at least until summer but there are some signs that later this year there will be some positive effects with some nice projects starting which will automatically absorb some capacity which on the other hand means that regular rates should move up as well.

    How to reach you? And whom to speak to globally depending on activity in your organisation?

    As stated we like the personal approach and as MD’s we are still vary active in the day to day business meaning I can get approached and I will either take care of the inquiry myself or one of our team members will. We like to provide a personal touch.

    CPC Coli Istanbul experiences good first quarter

    Q1 of 2024 has started out well for CPC Coli Project Cargo in Istanbul. The company contracted a continuous flow of industrial project cargo shipments. The full subsidiary of COLI Group (Germany) handled projects consisting of more than 10,000 freight tonnes, including various (heavy) lifts ranging from 35 mt to 300 mt units.

    The majority of these projects were handled both outbound and inbound Turkey to various power plants located in West Europe, North Europe, Scandinavia, West Africa, East Africa , the Red Sea region, and the Persian Gulf. Transports ranged from sole charters to world-wide logistics solutions, incl. jacking and skidding services.

    Can Yilbasi, Business Development Manager at CPC Coli Project Cargo, says:

    “Throughout the first quarter our Istanbul Team was awarded with charter contracts both for gearless and geared MPP vessels. There’s one thing we are especially proud of: as some clients were very happy with the way we handled their breakbulk logistics, they decided to expand the scope of work awarded to us while the original projects were still running! Port supervision, pre-carriage road transports, crawler and mobile cranes deployment, site erection services, and more. It have us a chance to show them our full-scope abilities when it comes to oversize cargo lifting and logistics.”

    With this workload and newly signed contracts in its order book – also throughout the Group – COLI is ready for the rest of the year. In fact, the company is expanding its own MPP fleet as well. More on this will be conveyed later in 2024.

    Bullets from Poland/Gdansk to Tahiti/Papeete

    COLI Shipping & Transport Brazil, part of COLI Group, has successfully concluded the execution of project Mana ITO. We were responsible for transporting a total cargo of no less than 26 freight tonnes from Gdansk, Poland, to Papeete, Tahiti!

    The project presented significant challenges, involving the transportation of 3 bullet tanks, SPMT’s and various containers with specialized equipment required for the safe bullet transports.

    Engineering & planning

    Navigating through these challenges, our team drew upon 50 years of experience to strategically plan, execute and control every step in the process of such complex projects. The selection of the appropriate vessel was critical. In this case we chose the F900 type Heavy Lift Vessel ‘UHL Fortune’, given its (and its crew’s!) capacity to handle oversized cargoes and the detailed lifting plans as meticulously designed by COLI’s engineering team.

    As our colleagues and competitors know, in the heavy lift and project cargo industries, you have to be prepared for the unexpected, no matter how well-prepared one executes a project. In  this case, despite careful planning, it proved essential to optimise the route for climate conditions and avoid congestion in one of the world’s most crucial canals. Indeed, midway through the voyage, a re-evaluation of the original sailing route became necessary. This was handled fast and smoothly by our Brazilian colleagues and to the satisfaction of all parties involved. 

    Discharge

    Over the course of more than 50 days of transit time, the discharge process paralleled the challenges encountered during the loading process in Europe.

    Special thanks to the engineers who made all necessary arrangements for a smooth loading/discharging operation!

    A tandem operation involving two cranes was meticulously planned, requiring ample deck space for swinging the bullets between the cranes. Again, as for example the actual outreach of the cranes depended on the specific positions of the lifting points (and with all three bullets stowed on deck), solid engineering was key.

    The entire project spanned more than 150 days with all parties impeccably synchronising their operations to safely and efficiently move this cargo across the globe. We extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed to the success of this project, and especially to our client, who entrusted us with this challenging endeavour.

    As always, COLI Shipping remains committed to delivering solutions beyond the ordinary.

    ANTRAK

    We are pleased to share the successful completion of a complex logistics project in collaboration with our Australian customer.

    COLI Shanghai successfully executed the complex task of transporting approx. 200 tonnes of structural steel from the supplier’s factory in Dongguan to Hong Kong International Airport. The cargo, intended for a mining project in Mali, presented unique challenges that required meticulous planning and execution.

    The original packing designed for sea transportation was not suitable for air freight.
    COLI Shanghai destuffed and repacked over 2,000 pieces of steel structures onto pallets designed specifically for transportation by two air charters. Ensuring suitability for air transport was crucial for the success of the operation.

    Due to limited space at the supplier’s factory and further complicated by adverse rainy weather in South China, the laden pallets were required to be temporarily stored in a warehouse pending delivery to airport. Protecting the pallets from rain was essential as added weight could impact the aircraft’s capacity.

    COLI Shipping deployed a dedicated team who worked on-site at the supplier’s factory, for the duration of the project, ensuring commitment to German quality standards, were achieved and maintained throughout the operation. The team worked collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure the project was completed on time.

    Special recognition was given to the Shanghai colleagues for their dedication and on-site efforts. COLI Shanghai expresses its gratitude to our Australian partner for contributing to the successful completion of the logistics operation.

    Overall, COLI Shanghai demonstrated expertise in managing the intricacies of air freight logistics, overcoming challenges with adaptability, coordination, and commitment to quality standards.
